Thanks Mike...You're doing such a nice job of lighting these to reveal their texture.
Thanks AllanThanks for posting these. Excellent.
Thank you, Nick...sometimes macro can be fun in that you see some unexpected things.Can't stop looking at these. As Connie observed, so fabric like!
Thanks ShekharAbsolutely brilliant!
I first saw the light while attending Mike Moat's annual macro photography conference about a year ago in Cleveland. It looked appealing. I haven't used it very often since I usually use my Nikon SB units. But, I really didn't want to bother setting up the lights so I just held this tiny unit up near the subject. I thought it did a nice job.That Litra Light looks really interesting, too -- I have seen something similar, Lume Cube, advertised and from time to time have thought how useful a small light like that could be for shooting in various situations..... I'll have to check out this one now!
Thanks Miriam...honestly, I didn't know it would look like fabric until I viewed the images on my computer monitor while editing them.Fascinating and beautiful. I had no idea butterfly wings would look so much like fabric. Well done!
